Ans: C Statment: set {a, b, c, d, e}, which are evenly distributed and are arranged in increasing order of value. means b= a+x, c=a+2x, d= a+3x, e=a+4x and so on.. what is c??? now from stat:1) a=4 ; c= 4+2x .. as we do not know anything about the x here (not Suff) stat:2) Range of set is 12 means ea= 12 ; a+4xa=12 so x=3 and c= a +2x : so c= a+6, but we don't know the value of a so (not suff) State 1&2) we know the value of a and x so c= 4+6= 10 (Suff) EgmatQuantExpert wrote: Solve any Median and Range question in a minute Exercise Question #4A set contains 5 integers {a, b, c, d, e}, which are evenly distributed and are arranged in increasing order of value.

Solution Given:• 5 integers are evenly distributed and arranged in increased order. To find:• The value of c Statement1: “The smallest integer of the set is 4“ a= 4 This does not give us any information about c. Hence, Statement 1 alone is not sufficient to answer the question. Statement2: “Range of the set is 12 “ Since all the 5 elements are evenly distributed, we can assume the b= a+r, c= b+r= a+2r and so on. • Hence, d= a+3r and e= a+4r Now, range is 12. Hence, ea= 12 • a+4ra= 12 • r= 3 • Hence, c= a+6 • But we don’t know the value of a. Statement 2 alone is not sufficient to answer the question. Combining both the statements: From Statement 1: a=4 From Statement 2: c=a+6 Hence, c= 10 Hence, we can find the answer by combining both the statements. Statement (1) and (2) together are sufficient to answer the question. Hence, the correct answer is option C. Answer: C
